These are 10 things on what not to do when chatting with people.
Learn to listen to what people actually are saying.Don't just wait eagerly for your turn to talk.
Asking to many questions
Don't make them feel like its an interrogation
That awkward silence,coming from being nervous or not knowing exactly why
Its not what you say,but how you say it
hogging the spot light
Everyone involved in a conversation should get a turn,don't interrupt,hijack their story.Find a balance between listening and talking.
having to be right
avoid arguing and having to be right about every topic.
talking about a weird or negative topic
Example:talking about bad health,or how your ex's did you wrong
Be prepared to drop a subject when you see people losing interest(.focus on the positive stuff,don't whine,show genuine interest)
Open up and say what you think and share how you feel
not contributing much
You might feel that you don't have much to contribute to a conversation,but try anyway...really listen,be interested,ask questions
I think all of us has been guilty of a few of these at times.
